    Based on the positive reviews, my wife and I decided to give this place a try, given it serves seafood. Before I got my meal, which was the most expensive dish on the menu ($20)(aghast!), a grilled Gulf Coast seafood dish of catfish, shrimp, and oysters, I went out of my way to the server to say I hope the new place succeeds, as it replaced a Mexican restaurant recently (that like this one, rented out the space to the Venice). Well, after that, my grilled seafood turned into a fried mess, so we returned it, only to be replaced by more fried hush puppies,, french fries, and 2/3 of what we were supposed to get (it was missing oysters). The owner, who took the order and our money in advance (it is a order and sit down place), told me in ordering that I would get 5 oysters, 5 shrimp, and a good sized catfish slice. None of that happened, after screwing it up the first time, and the quality of the food was marginal, at best, more fitting for a $5 order coming from a food truck at a carnival. My wife's shrimp scampi app consisted of really crappy, small shrimp, likely microwaved or frozen beforehand, and thankfully there were only a few of them. When the owner or server came by to give us the order we were supposed to get, twice, nary an apology, or an offer to cut something off the bill as an accommodation. I gave the server another chance to do that at the end of the food nightmare, but she said I can take it up with the owner, which I opted not to b/c I didn't think it would serve any purpose. In leaving the place I did not see her even make an attempt to talk to the owner, as she probably wanted to make a beeline out of there too. Bottom line, this is the first and last time I will eat at this dump, and I can't imagine why anyone would write a positive review. Good riddance. The place will not last long, if Kent and its citizens are lucky.

    The owner's wife is gluten free and he built the restaurant for her. Everything is breaded to order so you can choose from gluten free or regular chicken strips, for example. I do not know if it is celiac friendly. I did not have a reaction, but I'm only gluten sensitive. Food is delicious!!
